SC is the International Conference for
High Performance Computing, Networking,
Storage and Analysis

SCHEDULE: NOV 12-18, 2011

When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your own schedule to guide you through the week.

You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.

Building a Scientific Data Warehouse, including Multi-boot HPC Capabilities

SESSION: Building a Scientific Data Warehouse, including Multi-boot HPC Capabilities

EVENT TYPE: Birds of a Feather

TIME: 5:30PM - 7:00PM

SESSION LEADER(S):Clark Gaylord, William Lu


The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute’s (VTTI) naturalistic driving studies observe driver behavior in the real world, using more than 3,000 vehicles instrumented to collect video and sensor data. This petascale research exemplifies data intensive scientific investigation and produces studies of unprecedented scale to better understand driving behavior relative to safety critical events. Discover how VTTI harnesses state-of-the-art HPC technologies, melding storage and data management capabilities with traditional HPC computational platforms, as an integral part of Virginia Tech’s Scientific Data Warehouse environment and throughout the data lifecycle. Attendees will learn how to: - Ensure your IT infrastructure design maximizes efficiency, including key processes; - Further capitalize on the savings achieved through HPC management tools that leverage dynamic multi-boot functionalities across varying operating systems and automated provisioning to optimize performance; - Apply HPC management lessons learned by one of the world’s premier transportation research facilities to the enterprise and other related industries.
